Pre-Requisites:

  1. Create Simple Microservice

  2. Run the Microservice

This section shows how to create a simple REST Microservice service client in no-time.

Steps:

  1. Create Maven project with pom.xml such as the following:

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 https://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
	<modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
	<groupId>com.jalalkiswani.examples</groupId>
	<artifactId>smart-cloud-microservice-client-example</artifactId>
	<version>0.0.1-SNAPSHOT</version>
	<packaging>war</packaging>
	<properties>
		<smart-cloud.version>4.0.8</smart-cloud.version>
	</properties>
	<dependencies>
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.jalalkiswani</groupId>
			<artifactId>smart-cloud-service-client</artifactId>
			<version>${smart-cloud.version}</version>
		</dependency>

		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.jalalkiswani</groupId>
			<artifactId>smart-cloud-web</artifactId>
			<version>${smart-cloud.version}</version>
		</dependency>
		<dependency>
			<groupId>com.jalalkiswani</groupId>
			<artifactId>smart-cloud-standalone</artifactId>
			<version>${smart-cloud.version}</version>
			<scope>provided</scope>
		</dependency>

	</dependencies>

	<build>
		<plugins>
			<plugin>
				<groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
				<artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
				<version>3.8.1</version>
				<configuration>
					<!-- http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-compiler-plugin/ -->
					<source>1.8</source>
					<target>1.8</target>
				</configuration>
			</plugin>
			<plugin>
				<groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
				<artifactId>maven-war-plugin</artifactId>
				<version>3.2.3</version>
				<configuration>
					<failOnMissingWebXml>false</failOnMissingWebXml>
				</configuration>
			</plugin>
		</plugins>
	</build>
</project>

If you are using Eclipse, be sure to refresh your project (select your project→ right click→ Maven→ Update Project)

  1. Create Person class as a model class at src/main/java/com/app/Person.java, such as the following:

package com.app;

public class Person {

	private String name;

	private int age;

	public String getName() {
		return name;
	}

	public void setName(String name) {
		this.name = name;
	}

	public int getAge() {
		return age;
	}

	public void setAge(int age) {
		this.age = age;
	}

}
  1. Create App class at src/main/java/com/app.App.java for quick testing:

package com.app;

import com.jk.util.JK;
import com.jk.web.services.client.JKServiceClient;

public class App {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		JKServiceClient<Person> client = new JKServiceClient<>("http://localhost:8080/app/example", Person.class);

		String response = client.callJsonAsString("/hello");
		JK.print(response);

		String response2 = client.callJsonAsString("/hello/Jalal");
		JK.print(response2);

		Person p = new Person();
		p.setName("Jalal");
		p.setAge(40);

		String response3 = client.callJsonWithPost("/hello", p);
		JK.print(response3);
	}
}

Run your App class, you should see something like this in your console:

client
